​This project is in progress to enlarge the area of emergent wetland at the Rocky River Nature Park, that, in turn, will produce additional suitable habitat for water birds, aquatic invertebrates and fish.  Public and student use of the Park is already beginning to increase as a result of this and other improvements at the Park.
